If you haven’t already noticed, Manor is a unique college that offers things you can’t find on many other campuses.
When you graduate from Manor, there are aspects of Manor that you’re bound to miss. When and if you transfer, it’s hard for another college to replace Manor. We’re here to tell you what makes Manor unique, and why you should take advantage of the opportunities available to you.
A close-knit community: Manor’s low student to teacher ratio (8:1!) is only the start of why you’ll feel like a part of our campus community! No matter where you go on campus, you’re bound to see someone you know.
Networking opportunities: When you know almost everyone on campus, imagine how many connections you’ll have, all of which are ready to set you up for your first job or internship. It’s generally recommended that students get an internship the summer before their Senior year, so you’ll be way ahead if you get one within the first two years of college!
The friendships: As a student, you’ll get to know the other students in your major during class, and you’ll meet others on campus outside of class. You’ll run into them everywhere on campus; When you see the same people multiple times everyday, you’re bound to get to know them and become friends!
Ease of involvement: Want to attend a club meeting? Just show up! Want to hold a position in an organization as a Freshman or Sophomore? Go for it! We challenge you to join campus organizations and take on a leadership position (imagine the resume boost)! Contact Ali Mootz at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
Classes in close proximity: Those 15 minutes in between classes feel a lot longer when you don’t need to walk a mile to your next class. At Manor, you’ll usually walk up or down one floor- or at the most, one building over- to your next class. This gives you more time to recharge in between classes!
Convenient location: If you’re a commuter, Manor has a spacious parking lot with FREE parking (other schools charge $100+ per semester). If you prefer to take public transportation, we have a Septa bus stop right on campus. Make sure you get your discounted Septa passes from Natalie Rudyj in the Bursar’s Office.
Support system: Manor has an incredible support system that encourages it’s students to succeed. If you need help in one of your classes, simply walk into your teacher’s office. Looking for a letter of recommendation? Just ask! Our faculty and staff are willing and eager to help our students in anyway possible.
Your time at Manor will fly by, so make sure you realize how blessed you are while you’re here! We guarantee you’ll miss Manor when you leave (and we’ll miss you)!
